Re: Stratovarius is going to reissue all the albums, Awesome!!!!

Another thought on the reissue campaign: As fans seeking to expand their Stratovarius collections likely would want in advance to know of all there is to collect, here are the best catalogue guides currently available for Stratovarius; none of these are absolutely comprehensive, but some of them are...

Re: Rate all Stratovarius album!

Really curious, what makes Elements 2 your second-favorite album behind Episode? Not criticizing, just a very interesting choice. Your question as to why I consider Elements Pt. 2 to be my second-favorite Stratovarius album is especially worthy of an answer because anecdotally, the Elements albums ...

Final Acquired a Copy of Deep Unknown

Thanks all. After about half a year, I finally acquired a copy of Deep Unknown and am glad to have it as part of my collection.

Re: My Instrumental Cover of "I Walk to My Own Song"

Sounds like you just imported the midi of the song like flavio does. :lol: Yes indeed, I freely acknowledge that this was a quite quick project that involved importing a midi file into Garageband, making some adjustments to the original notation, and transferring the original low-quality midi sound...

My Instrumental Cover of "I Walk to My Own Song"

Folks, For your listening enjoyment, here is a link to my electronic instrumental rendition of Stratovarius' "I Walk to My Own Song," from the band's 2003 album, Elements Pt. 2.

Re: How Rare is the Deep Unknown Single Release?

It took me quite a few months of waiting as well until I finally found one for sale last year (or was it already in 2013, can't remember). I'd recommend regularly checking discogs.com and huuto.net besides the usual online sellers, I've often been successful there when I searched for a rarity, espe...

I have been searching across the Internet for a copy of the Deep Unknown single to purchase, but after an extended search, I've been unable to locate a copy available from an online retailer.

Re: Probably new titles for the new album

If Stratovarius truly is following the naming formula that KupiainenItaly96 described, it also is possible that the following could be the name of the 2015 and possibly the name of the first-after-2015 album (in recognition that the Greek versions of these words do not necessarily need the same spel...
